Seven Days is like a introdution to the BL world. Most of people start with shounen-ai or light yaoi like Little Butterfly. Rin! and Seven Days are similar because both are great stories involving archery, "love triangle" and they give the same heart-warming feeling about BL school life. I must say I hold a special care for Rin! because of the great character development we get and I really think RIn! should receive the same attention Seven Days has.

Both stories involves Japanese Archery, wherein the main leads are having doubt with themselves because they were starting to fall in love with the same gender, which caused them to encounter troubles in their performances and skills in archery. Rin's story is more on shounen-ai. It is light weight and a bit slow-paced. Kimi ga koi ni Ochiru is more on usual yaoi with sexy love scenes. Both are worth the read.
Both ukes are small, cute, and reserved, while the semes are handsome and more socially active. In Rin!, uke is dependent on seme due to a past tragedy, and in BnS, the seme is the only person that can emotionally understand the uke.
Personally, I think both stories are amazing.
Significantly younger uke loves older seme, and really looks up to him. Seme gets jealous of anyone that gets too close to his attractive uke.
Both involve ukes begin dating their older brother's friend. The semes both begin the relationship, and are shown as the ones that fell in love first. Only after this is revealed do the ukes share this passion.
The art in both manga evoke a similar light and calming feel, and the mains in both reads also share a a similar dilemma - they already have a love interest, but their close friends are eyeing the position of becoming their potential lover.

The story for both develops at a more gradual pace, a bonus for those looking for good bl reads that span more 2 volumes or more.
